Parakeet auklets.  This was from last week during my bear and puffin trip.  Right now, I’m out in Kenai Fjords where I should have a lot more opportunities to photograph these guys.  I’ll let you know on Sunday!

Heading out shortly for five days in Kenai Fjords National Park. Can’t wait! This was from an overnight shake down cruise last Friday.

We will be very comfortable. Sixty seven feet for just 4 guests!

So Many Cubs!

Home from a second amazing week with bears! Three sets of spring cubs this year! Plus, so much more. Along with few human visitors, so far the summer of 2020 has exceeded my high expectations. This is the famous sow crimp with triplets born this past winter.

Two young cubs watch on as a mom drops the remains of a clam she just dug up. The mom eats most of them, but every now and then leaves one for one of the cubs.
